A HISTORY OF THE PRESS OF MICHIGAN

PREPARED FOR THE CENTENNIAL BY ORDER OF GOV. JOHN J. BAGLEY TOM S. APPLEGATE, COMPILER
Section II

This concludes the history of the press of Adrian. Tecumseh claims to have had a paper, the same year as Adrian—1834. It was called The Tecumseh Democrat, was democratic in politics, was printed on a Ramage press, and its forms were inked with balls, as in the 'olden time. Beriah Brown was the publisher of this paper, and its publication was continued until 1837, when it suspended publication, and was succeeded by The Village Record, which went the way of all the earth in 1847. From that date until 1850, Tecumseh was without a paper.
May 25, 1850, The Tecumseh Herald appeared, James H. Perry being the publisher. In less than four months he sold the establishment to L. G. Sholes & Co., and during the ensuing two years the establishment changed hands several times. In October, 1852, the paper was purchased by Richard & Baxter, who conducted it for three years, when Mr. Baxter retired, leaving it in the control of Wm. Richard, who managed the paper either directly or indirectly for a period of eleven years thereafter. The office, in January, 1866, was sold to C. M. Burlingame, who conducted the business until November, 1874, when it was sold to S. C. Stacy, who still continues to publish it. The Herald is independent in politics, and is published weekly.
The Raisin Valley Record was established September 15, 1866, by P. R. and P. W. Adams. It is republican in politics, of weekly issue, and Chas. T. Chapin is the present proprietor. The first paper printed in Hudson was issued by W. H. Bowlsby, January 9, 1853, and was called The Hudson Sentinel. It went down in 1855, and in September of that year The Hudson Courier, a republican paper, was started, and this was subsequently succeeded by The Saturday Evening News, independent, and this on March 26, 1858, by The Gazette, W. T. B. Schermer-horn, editor and proprietor. The Gazette is of weekly issue, independent in politics, and its founder still continues to issue it.
